5.0 out of 5 stars Masterpece of Delta blues, 23 Oct. 2009
An important influence on Muddy Waters and also on Robert Johnson, this Delta blues legend recorded for Paramount Records in 1930 (A Proper Introduction to Son House: Delta Blues) and for Alan Lomax (The Complete Library of Congress Sessions 1941-1942). Rediscovered in the blues revival movement of the sixties, he still sang the blues the same way and was able to deliver astonishing performances such as the ones captured on this CD.

4.0 out of 5 stars 1965 Sessions, 14 April 2010

It sticks in my craw a little that you're as likely to hear Son House mentioned as an influence on Robert Johnson (or indeed Jack White) as you are to hear him mentioned in his own right. He had a more laid-back style of playing, but his voice is twice that of Johnson's. For my money, he's the best blues singer of all.

This collection, then, is a pleasing collection of the recordings he made after his re-discovery, and is well worth the purchase. Highlights include Death Letter Blues, a scintillating a capella Grinning In Your Face and Sundown. Download these, and if you like them you can buy this album knowing you won't be disappointed.

Personally i love it.

I forget just who it was had John the Revelator as one of his Desert Island discs although anyone with the vaguest interest in the development of modern music simply has to hear this CD
